Launched in August 2019, through Polite I aim to promote art and ideas that favour truth, quality and humour over trends, righteousness and experimentation for its own sake.
I publish work corresponding to the following categories:
What's Good: Short reviews of a film, book or band that is under-appreciated or misunderstood.
Essays & General Reviews: Longer form essays and analytical reviews concerning a current issue, recently released work or work of contemporary relevance.
Fiction: Short stories, novel excerpts.

I am an Australian writer living in Paris. I grew up in Sydney and have lived in London and Rio de Janeiro.
Aside from writing I teach law at Paris universities I (Panthéon-Sorbonne) and X (Nanterre).
